Tea Tree Essential Oil is praised in research and within reputable essential oil books and monographs. We welcome and encourage you to research and learn abot this very important essential oil.
We recommend that you always dilute Tea Tree Essential Oil (sourced from any vendor) before topical application. Tisserand and Young suggest a dermal maximum of 15% for topical use. Despite the many sources that claim it is ok to use on the skin undiluted, there are indications that it can cause sensitization for some individuals.
